Zoey | Personal

This girl is one of the very best.  A couple years ago, our summer helper was heading to college, so I asked her if she had any recommendations for someone to help me the following summer. Keep in mind, I've always initially had issues with a "mother's helper" - being so introverted, I wondered what I'd do with a babysitter at my home if I was going to be home, too.  Would I be able to let go of tasks and let her help?  What would it be like when the kids were napping?  What would we talk about?  Blah blah blah.  Well, these helpers/sitter have always been such a huge blessing.  As always, my worries never came to be, and I was always so thankful when a Tuesday would roll around and I knew I would have someone at the house to help love on my kids.  This is Zoey.  She's become so much more than our helper/sitter - we adore her - and I'm already worrying about the day she'll go away.  Luckily, it's not this year :)  Here she is ready for prom...
